Biography

As a geologist I'm fascinated by our wonderfully complex yet amazingly organized planet. In particular I'm interested in volcanic systems, having seen first-hand the profound impact they have on so many people's lives. In my research, I plan to focus on the Asia-Pacific region where tsunamis generated by volcanic collapses pose a globally significant hazard. By utilising new technologies I hope to help understand these environments in a more sophisticated way, improving both our understanding of our planet and our ability to manage volcanic risks.
